Honda CB150X Adventure Tourer price in india

At the GIIAS Auto Show in Indonesia, Honda showcased its smallest adventure tourer motorcycle, the CB150X. The new Honda CB150X retains much of its design and visual appeal with bigger adventure tourers like CB200X and CB500X and is based on the existing 150cc platform of sport-oriented motorcycles. The CB150X has been launched officially in the Indonesian market for RP 32 million (around Rs 1.67 lakh).

Design

Just like the bigger CB200X and CB500X, the Honda CB150X is a road-biased urban motorcycle and not an off-road adventure motorcycle like the flagship CRF1100 Africa Twin. The motorcycle is getting a high mounted angular all-LED headlamp, with a tall and transparent windscreen above it and a beak-like chin under it with faux air vents within it. The beak and headlamp cowl flow into the semi-fairing which moulds well with the sharp-looking fuel tank.

The Honda CB150X gets a long step-themed seat, slim side body panels, golden-finished front forks, conventional front and rear fenders, a long exhaust pipe with silver-finished tip and a bulky looking silver-finished bash plate, the last one of which is not available in the bigger CB200X. Also on offer are a fully digital instrument and silver-finished handlebar levers. While the CB150X misses out on handlebar crash guards with turn indicators integrated within them, the motorcycle gets separate LED turn indicators on the sides of the headlamp.

Engine and Transmission

The Honda CB150X gets the same four-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 149cc engine which powers other global offerings like CB150R and CBR150R. The engine packs in a good amount of punch for a small 150cc engine, with a maximum power output of 16.5 bhp @ 9,000 rpm and maximum torque output of 13.8 Nm @ 7,000 rpm. Like the engine, the CB150X shares its 6-speed gearbox with the CBR150R.

Chassis

There is no fancy setup for the chassis of the Honda CB150X, as the motorcycle gets 37mm conventional hydraulic telescopic forks at the front and an adjustable mono-shock at the rear. There are 17-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels and petal disc brakes at both ends, with the motorcycle getting a decent ground clearance of 181mm.

Will it come to India?

The Honda CB150X now sits as the entry-level adventure tourer offering below the CBR150R in Indonesia. The motorcycle is loosely based on the slightly bigger Honda CB200X, which is already available in the Indian market. Because there are no major differences in performance outputs and other mechanical advantages between the CB150X and CB200X, the former is unlikely to come to India. Currently, in the 150-200cc segment, Honda sells models like Unicorn, XBlade, Hornet 2.0 and CB200X in the Indian market.
